My 5 1/2 month old has become a restless sleeper at night and also during the day. He doesn't seem to be able to sleep more than 20 minutes during the day at naptimes, and most of the time less than that. At night he is so worn out (and me too) but sleeps soundly for about 2 hours and then trashes, kicks and scoots around. He will do that and sleep off and on for hours but doesn't cry, though he sometimes grunts. Before this started he was sleeping most of the night, about 7 hours. He was also taking a good hour nap in the morning and then another about 2 hour nap in the afternoon. I would appreciate any feedback or more importantly advice on how to help rest more peacefully. He recently cut his 2 bottom teeth, a few days before this started. But doesn't seem to be the problem. He is still sleeping in our room in his bassinet beside the bed. I've tried putting him in his own room in his crib but that made it even worse. Please help!
